To All COLA LO Members,
It seems one of the candidates has received an endorsement from a county party and some shenanigans may have occurred to try to influence the election. Its high drama in Lake Oswego.
It also appears a concerted effort to discredit the existing school districts security was made by a supporter of candidate Sarah Howell. She is running against candidate Kevin Robertson for the LOSD board.
Details can be found at Dirty Tricks. and KATU Video.
At the same time this candidate has been endorsed by the Clackamas County Democratic Party but we aren't certain if they have received any funds from the partisan organization.
Contributions and a summary can be found at Candidate details.
Its no secret that city council elections have had hidden partisan support and the Clackamas County Democratic Party provided funds to both Councilors Tierney and Moncrieff. Are they doing the same in the LOSD election without disclosure?
When will voters get the real story on the local elections? Its long over due in LO and it now appears that LOSD is no different than council elections.
We find it disturbing if these details are true. Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
